Congratulations Dad!

It was probably several years ago when poker started to get popular on ESPN when my father really took a liking to Texas Hold’em. Turns out he’s got some skills.

Today he entered a $5 tournament on Poker Stars. Five hours later, he beat out the entire field and won a seat at his first legitimate poker tournament, the European Poker Tour German Open. Poker Stars will fly him out at the end of the month, put him up at a hotel for the week, give him some spending cash, and cover his $7,700 euro entry fee. Not too bad for $5 and five hours work.

Good luck Dad! Bring home $1,000,000!
